Sony Internet TV as an internet Hub

Recently I came across this post. And now believe that my Sony Internet TV NSX-40GT1 or in other words my 40" Sony Google TV is the best TV I could have ever wanted while owning a raspberry pi, or any other kid of media server. The CEC is amazing, but here is something else. If you are connected to WiFi over you TV, you can use the LAN connection in the back to plug something else in, and the TV forwards the internet on. You just makre sure under Internet Status you have Private network Enabled, and wallah you now have internet on the device plugged into your TV without another wireless card or stringing a cable from your router.

This is also awesome if you have an XBOX that needs a network cable!
